This week our Jesus story is "God keeps baby Moses safe". We learned about Moses in a basket being found by the princess. Yet God kept him safe, and his mother was able to raise him and teach him about God and God's love for all of us. "My times are in your hands" Psalm 31:15 is our memory treasure.
In Science we are still looking at the seasons and the weather that goes with them. Why does it rain? I bet they can tell you now 😊
In Social Studies we are going to talk more about community helpers.
In Art we are going to create our own masterpiece combining cut and torn paper. Movement is our obstacle course. It can get pretty tricky.
Preschool: Our letter this week is Gg for God, goat, guitar, goose. Our number is 6 "one big curl to pick up sticks, that's the way we make a 6".
Kindergarten: In Math we are going to take Test 3. Our numbers are getting bigger and digging deeper into 6-10. In Reading we made our own odd animals as we said "see ya later" to Oswald. We met a new superkid "Golly". Let's see what adventures he brings. Ask your child what's different about Golly too.

In 1st grade Math we reviewed and practiced our subtraction strategies of counting more to make a ten, subtracting to make a ten, adding to subtract, counting on to subtract, and using a number line to subtract. In Reading we identified initial and final th, encoded th words, and used capitalization and exclamation marks in sentences.
In 2nd Math we finished our chapter on data and graphs and started to learn about place value. We grouped tens as hundreds and wrote three-digit numbers in different ways. In Reading class, we distinguished and identified between long and short vowel sounds.
In 3rd grade Math we identified and solved problems using the four properties of multiplication: The Identity Property, The Associative Property, The Zero Property, and The Distributive Property. In Reading we are reading the novel “How to Be Cool in the Third Grade” by Betsy Duffey.
In Religion we learned about Jesus’ first miracle. He used his almighty power to turn water into wine. Jesus uses his almighty power to give us everything we need. We also learned that Jesus used his almighty power to heal an official’s son. Jesus can use his almighty power to help us in times of sickness.
